Every year the TED Fellows program selects a new group of extraordinary, multidisciplinary individuals by open application. We look for innovators on the rise in their respective fields who are doing bold, original work.
The TED Fellows Program recognizes the folks working on-the-ground on world-changing ideas - the doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, educators, scientists, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and human rights activists. If you’re at work on a future-shaping idea and over the age of 18, you should apply.
The TED Fellows program is not an academic fellowship and non-traditional educations are welcome.
Fellows will receive professional development through virtual workshops and webinars, as well as attend the TED2022 conference scheduled for April 7 to 15, 2022 in Vancouver, Canada. Participants will also give a TED Talk (at a virtual or live event, depending on the state of the pandemic).
Applicants must be fluent in English and have an idea worth sharing.
TED pays for round-trip economy airfare, ground transportation to and from the conference location, meals and shared accommodation on site.
